Fantastic views over Salzburg. Take a jacket, it is a good 10 degrees cooler on the mountain than in Salzburg.

We didn't originally plan to do the cable car but accidentally found ourselves there and could not resist; we ended up doing the climb to each of the cross points (close to the German side) when the mountain was still covered in slushy snow - the views were absolutely worth it (I was singing Climb E'vry Mountain and looking for...

A great day out. You can walk up the mountain from Schmiedererplatz in Parsch (bus 6). It will take 3 hours or so and is well sign-posted. There are various routes from the straight up (I run/walk it in less than an hour) to the old railway track which winds its way up. Stop for a drink at the Zistelalm... More

Coming from Australia where we have very small mountains the Untersberg is a magnificent sight with great views. The ride up the mountain on the cable car is also impressive.

Today I braved the cable car up the Untersberg, after years of plucking up the courage. If you're afraid heights, it's 9 minutes, 10 seconds of pure terror, as you make a steep ascent over a large drop! I sat on the floor the whole way with my eyes closed, rocking gently backwards and forwards, looking like a complete moron.... More

There are 2 restaurants up there as well as stunning views of the town, sky and mountains. (Free WiFi, look out for the username and password) From there, we chose to hike for another... More
